there was a thread about this a while back... and as far as i remember, as long as the switch is smooth, its alright. thats what the consant mesh gearbox is for. just dont rev too high when you do it... or too low.
John has some good advise there and that is: "Use the Clutch..." lol... the notion that you only save a nano second of time by upshifting without the clutch and risking destroying your tranny over time makes obvious sense.... unless you are 100% confident that you are doing it CORRECTLY, use the clutch!

Go for it, though don't try going down without the clutch <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="images/icons/tongue.gif" /> Can be done, I do it sometimes to amuse myself, but very rarely.
Hmmm it is possible, I do this only when I am a gear to high... and shift down to pick up the pace.... not to slow down that is....
